Wee Stamps - Wee One. New Challenge at The Ribbon Girls


Good Morning! I hope you're all having a great weekend :)  Mine has been filled with crafting and for those of you waiting on my video on colouring hair with distress inks, I have filmed it, but it took almost all day yesterday to upload (we have sloooooow internet where I live and I was so tired I forgot to upload overnight), so I'm still in the process of editing it. It should be ready to share soon

But enough of videos and on to my post for this morning. It's that time of month for a new 'Any Image' challenge over at The Ribbon Girls Blog, and as always it's anything goes. For my inspiration I'm sharing this super sweet baby card that I made for a special friend who's also super sweet. She's just given birth to a little girl, so I wanted to make a special baby girl card for her.

This wonderful stamp  called Wee One from Whimsy's Wee Stamps collection, drawn by the wonderful Sylvia Zet was just the thing, and I coloured her as usual with my distress ink markers.

I really like the way the finished card looks, and I hope she does too!


I used the following colours:
Vintage Photo, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Hickory Smoke, Black Soot.
I used lashings of Wink of Stella on the frills of the pram, but as usual I could not get it to show on the photographs, no matter how I adjusted my lights.


The pretty papers are from Maja Design, I used Go Kreate dies for my card base and Die-namics dies to frame my image. The rocking horse die is from La-La Land Crafts. I edged all my papers with Walnut Stain distress ink.


I kept the decoration on the inside of the card very simple, just echoing the patterns and shapes from the front

I used the following embellishments from The Ribbon Girl


First prize:  £10 voucher for LOTV
Second prize:  £10 voucher for The Ribbon Girl
Third prize:  Mystery prize from Marianne Designs
.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the team's awesome makes on the blog, I hope to see your's there too!

That's all from me but I'll be back later with something a little different :) xx
